Franklin is our COO and Service Manager and has been part of the Meco family since birth. His grandfather and father owned the business before him and growing up with Meco has shaped him into who he is today. Before he worked at Meco though, he was a racecar driver and sports agent. Although he enjoys the high-speed thrill of racing, the fast-paced nature of Meco has been the most challenging thing he has encountered at Meco. However, he loves that Meco is energetic, committed and growing. Working alongside like-minded individuals who are positive and committed to making Meco grow and succeed has been his favorite part about working at the company his grandfather started many years ago.
When Franklin is not working alongside Brad, working with our service technicians, or out on job sites himself, he loves to spend time at home with his wife, Jessica, two kids, Jefferson and William, and their three dogs. He defines success as seeing his family happy and watching his kids enjoy their childhood. He still loves racecars, or really any car, and will occasionally race, but he would love to one day race at Spa Francorchamps in Stavelot, Belgium. To date, one of his favorite memories racing was when he qualified first and won a big race at Charlotte Motor Speedway at 14 years old. He met the President of Nascar, Bill France, who shook his hand and told him “they must be putting something in water down in Augusta”. If he could try out a different job for a day though, you would find him as President, running the company for one of our vendors, Wayne Fueling.
Franklin is hard working and is always seeking to be a better leader for our service department. His strong people skills and positive attitude are what makes him a great part of our Meco family. His goal is to see the satisfaction of happy customers and to see projects and jobs done well. His hope for the future of Meco is to see three branches and a large commercial fueling division. We are so thankful for him and how he serves, leads and encourages our company to continue to grow as Meco moves forward into a bigger and brighter future.
